You’re correct, I’ve never operated on a gunshot victim. But I don’t believe that is a prerequisite for analyzing Vox’s misapplication of statistics.

If you have mathematical criticisms of the article, and can present them without the appeal to emotion, I welcome them.

I have another question as well, if you don’t mind. How often are urology specialists on-call in ERs for gunshot victims? Is this common in western NC?
